This parts of a butterfly preschool worksheet is perfect for your life cycle, insect, and general butterfly-themed preschool activities this spring and summer.
Butterflies are so much fun to teach. Kids love to learn about how they pollinate flowers, how they grow from egg to caterpillar to adult, and how to name the parts of the butterfly.
Parts of a Butterfly
Add this free spring printable to your seasonal lesson plans. Because it’s print-and-go, it’s perfect for busy homeschool moms and teachers like you!
Activities that instruct children to label objects are great for building vocabulary.
You can use labeling worksheets to introduce or reinforce vocabulary words relevant to the theme you’re teaching.
You can also use labeling activities to help little ones become familiar with the written words.
When you give kids cut and paste worksheets, you give them an opportunity to practice their scissor skills.
Putting labels in the correct boxes is a good way to develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Who knew one little worksheet could provide so many benefits!
It’s really easy to make this a reusable activity. First, have your child color the butterfly on the worksheet. Then, laminate the page.
Cut the bottom strip off (the part with the label boxes).
Put a velcro dot on each blank box as well as on the back of each label. Preschoolers can stick the labels on the diagram, and take them off again.
